Elisabeth Ovesen (a creative director, writer, and former music video actress who was formerly known as Karrine Steffans) shared the news that she's expecting a baby with Kwame on Instagram this week.
She confirmed the baby news in an emotional post that described the many emotions she was feeling about learning she is pregnant, adding a message for Kwame: "Thank you, [Kwame] for the most exciting, most terrifying gift. I don’t know what comes next, but I know I can’t do it without you. I hope everyone enjoys their [New Year's Eve] plans. I’ll be in bed and off social for a bit … praying for a miracle."
While Kwame, who in addition to appearing on Top Chef as a contestant and later a judge on several occasions is also a James Beard Award-winning chef and author, has yet to comment about the news. He did, however, recently reflect on what has been a hectic 12 months for him as he continues to grow his culinary career and beyond.
"It’s been a busy year. From moving back to NYC, dropping my nail polish line, to releasing my cookbook [My America: Recipes from a Young Black Chef: A Cookbook], the second annual Family Reunion festival, partnering with [G.H.Mumm Champagne], and opening my new restaurant, Tatiana - 2022 was one for the books," he wrote. Weeks before, in mid-November, he shared a childhood photo of himself, writing, "Happy birthday young man, your dreams came true. 11/11."
